Quad SLI for DIYers

NVIDIA has officially released its WHQL certified ForceWare 91.45 drivers for Quad SLI technology. The drivers were previously available in beta form on NVIDIA’s nZone site. The new drivers are placed under a new Quad SLI section instead of the usual GeForce and TNT2 driver section. Interestingly enough the latest ForceWare 91.45 only supports GeForce 7950GX2 graphics cards. Users with 7900GX2 graphics cards will have to wait for drivers from respective system builders such as Alienware, Dell, Velocity and other manufacturers of early Quad SLI systems.

The release highlights include:
  • Adds support for Quad NVIDIA SLI™ Technology on GeForce 7950 GX2 GPUs. For more information on Quad NVIDIA SLI, please visit this website.
  • Includes the new NVIDIA Control Panel. Please visit the NVIDIA Control Panel website for more information.
  • New NVIDIA PureVideo features and enhancements. Please visit the NVIDIA PureVideo website for more information on PureVideo technology and system requirements.
  • Adds noise reduction post processing
  • Adds image sharpening post processing
  • Improved Inverse telecine algorithm
  • Improved de-interlacing algorithm
  • Improved compatibility with third party MPEG-2 decoders
  • Microsoft® DirectX® 9.0c and OpenGL® 2.0 support
Users with two GeForce 7950GX2 graphics cards can grab the drivers from NVIDIA’s website.

RE: Even if it was beneficial

I feel your anger pal. But in contrast, have you ever produced your best work from the start? Did you walk before you crawled? Did you drive (car) before you rode (bicycle)? Did you do a Doogie Howser and skip high school and when straight to college? Probably not. I am just saying Nvidia probably has been perfecting this for awhile and feels like its safe enough to release it.

However, you do have a genuine beef. I feel the same way about Sony. Why does Sony have to be so far ahead of everyone else when it comes to innovation? They normally have stuff several years ahead of everyone else. This is the very reason everyone here beats up on Sony so much. Maybe if they slowed things up a bit and allow the less fortunate to immitate their technology maybe they would be just another knock off company producing electronics and not the industry leader when it comes to innovation and technology.
